Will Google give me celeb treatment and blur my home from ‘Street View’?

Recently we’ve received several ‘I Want to Buy Your House’ post cards in the mail. The post cards are presumably from flippers or real estate agents, and each card features a photo of our house. After receiving a few of these cards, I realized the senders were probably pulling the photos from Google Street View or a similar resource.

My county’s D+ shouldn’t have been the primary focus of a local news story

Counties around the country are getting ‘graded’ on social distancing, and my county of Duval got a D+.

Information beneficial to the public wasn’t included. Continue reading “My county’s D+ shouldn’t have been the primary focus of a local news story”
